‘Superhuman’ continues to mark out one of the most naturally compelling new voices coming out of the UK right now. With this second slice of soul-bearing vulnerability, Tom’s capacity for more sombre tones is made all the more apparent. Watch here
Following on from his previous release ‘Believer’ – ‘Superhuman’ is another beautiful balance of confessional emotions and melodic beauty from an artist whose body of work continues to set the bar extremely high.
Speaking on the track, Tom states: “I have this image in my head of a man in a suit, underwater, never reaching the surface. ‘Superhuman’ is about working too hard towards something, and becoming engulfed. I worked for a few years at a law firm with the idea that a solid, well-paid job would somehow help me cling on in London, making music. But I was juggling two careers with no space for anything else, to breaking point. Sometimes it is better to give up, and to go home, if you can.”
